BOEFLY® WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY


Effective Date: Dec 1, 2015

Thank you for visiting the website located at www.boefly.com (the Site"). The Site is an Internet property of Boefly, LLC ("Boefly®," "we" or "us"). Boefly® has created this Boefly® Website Privacy Policy (the "Privacy Policy") in order to disclose our information gathering and dissemination practices.

This Privacy Policy only covers our use and disclosure of information we collect on our website www.boefly.com and our Service accessible from our website. All data collected on our corporate website www.boefly.com is owned by BoeFly.

Information collected through our Service is owned by our Customers. The collection and use of this information shall be limited to the purpose of providing the Service to our Customers.

While the Site remains available to end-user visitors without any registration requirements ("Visitors"), in order to utilize some of the Site's enhanced features, services and various exchanges (collectively, "Services"), interested parties must either register as: (a) a borrower or broker of a borrower (collectively, "Borrower") on the Site as described in the Boefly® Website Borrower Terms and Conditions ("Borrower Terms"); (b) a lender, factor or other finance company ("Lender"), as described in the Boefly® Website Lender Terms and Conditions ("Lender Terms"); (c) a franchisor ("Franchisor") or association ("Association"), as described in the Boefly® Website Franchisor Terms and Conditions and Boefly® Website Association Terms and Conditions, respectively (collectively, "Franchisor/Association Terms"); (d) a franchisee ("Franchisee") or association member ("Association Member"), as described in the Boefly® Website Franchisee Terms and Conditions and Boefly® Website Association Member Terms and Conditions, respectively (collectively, "Franchisee/Association Member Terms"); (e) an accountant, attorney, environmental engineer, appraiser or other applicable service provider (collectively, "Service Provider"), as described in the Boefly® Website Service Provider Terms and Conditions ("Service Provider Terms and Conditions"); and/or (f) register as a loan buyer ("Buyer") or loan seller ("Seller"), as described in the Boefly® Website Buyer Terms and Conditions and Boefly® Website Seller Terms and Conditions, respectively ("Buyer/Seller Terms and Conditions" and together with the Lender Terms, Franchisor/Association Terms, Franchisee/Association Member Terms and Service Provider Terms, the "Registered User Terms").

In order to complete the Registered User Terms, applicants must supply certain personally identifiable information. None of the information that we gather can be used by Visitors to identify specific individuals. We are an optional service. The Site collects credit card, address, bank account and/or other Personal Information only from those individuals/entities that choose to participate and provide such information.

For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, Borrowers, Association Members and Service Providers are referred to collectively as, "Registered Individuals" and Lenders, Franchisors, Franchisees, Associations, Buyers and Sellers are referred to collectively as, "Registered Entities." For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, Registered Individuals and Registered Entities shall be referred to, collectively, as "Registered Users." Because we offer a variety of services to distinct users, our Privacy Policy contains three (3) separate sets of terms and conditions: a set for our Visitors, a set for Registered Individuals and a set for Registered Entities.

For purposes of compliance with the California Financial Privacy Act, the North Dakota Century Code §§ 6.08.1-01 to 6-08.1-08 and Vermont Consumer Protection Act, 8 V.S.A. 10202, if you are a resident of the State of California, North Dakota or Vermont and would like to opt-out from the disclosure of your Personal Information to any third-party for marketing purposes, please Click Here. Please be advised that where California, North Dakota or Vermont State residents opt-out from permitting their Personal Information to be shared, such individuals may still receive selected offers directly from us, in accordance with the law.

I. Visitors

Visitors may submit certain financial information via the Boefly® Fundability Wizard interface, and other Site applications, but such information will not be linked to any personally identifiable information that would identify a Visitor other than where you voluntarily submit an e-mail address in connection with your request to receive the Boefly® newsletter, your use of the Boefly® Fundability Wizard interface or other similar Site applications made available to Visitors (collectively, a "Visitor Submission"). In such cases, the personally identifiable information that you provide in connection with a Visitor Submission shall be treated in the manner set forth the Registered Individuals section below.

Use of Information Obtained by Boefly®

As a general rule, Boefly® does not share any Visitors’ personally identifiable information that it otherwise obtains.

The collection, use and disclosure of information by clients, affiliates and/or partners is subject to their respective privacy policies, which may differ from this Privacy Policy.

Where you register as a Registered Individual, we use the Personal Information that you supply to personalize your experience with the Site, facilitate the delivery of the applicable Services and for verification purposes.

To the extent that Boefly® collects your credit card-specific information, if ever, we will use the information to process and complete any transaction that you request. By submitting your credit card information to us, you authorize Boefly® to periodically verify that your credit card account continues to be a valid and active one by charging, and thereafter immediately crediting, a small sum to the card. Such verification may be conducted through a third-party and, in that case, Boefly® would share your specific credit card information with this third-party for verification purposes. Apart from said uses, we will not share your credit card information with any third-parties without your prior informed consent.

Security

Boefly® takes every precaution to protect our Registered Users’ information. When Registered Users submit information via the Site, we endeavor to keep this information protected both online and off-line. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your Personal Information and/or Business Entity Information, as applicable, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.

When we ask Registered Users to enter Sensitive Information, such as credit card information, and when such Sensitive Information is stored and/or transmitted, that information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. While we use SSL encryption to protect Sensitive Information online, we also do everything in our power to protect Sensitive Information off-line. All of our Registered Users’ information, not just the Sensitive Information mentioned above, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example a billing clerk or a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. All such employees are contractually bound to adhere to our security protocols, which they must verify that they have read and understand. The practices for handling Sensitive Information are disseminated to all of our employees. In compliance with applicable federal and state laws, we shall notify you and any applicable regulatory agencies in the event that we learn of an information security breach with respect to your Personal Information and/or Business Entity Information, as applicable. You will be notified via e-mail in the event of such a breach. Please be advised that notice may be delayed in order to address the needs of law enforcement, determine the scope of network damage and to engage in remedial measures.

If you have any questions about Site security, please Contact Us.
